New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly. Last month, Somerset Operating Company, a subsidiary of Riesling Power LLC, submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) to waive the state's required, 180-day notice to close the Somerset Station, allowing the facility to be retired on February 15, 2020. Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

India Federal Power Secretary Says Country Should Wait to Deregulate Energy

LCG, September 12, 2002-According to the Press Trust of India, India's Federal Power Secretary has said that the country should wait at least ten years to deregulate its electricity industry.

Power Secretary R.V. Shahi said that the lack of balance between demand and supply, an unfortunate condition that prevails in India, mandates that deregulation wait.

Many regions of the country suffer from regular blackouts or receive no power at all, and much of the power produced is also stolen. Shahi is confident of a future when supply matches demand more closely, but he believes deregulation now will only lead to more chaos.

An International conference will be held in New Delhi this October addressing energy regulation in developing countries.
